The school includes lectures tackling major trends in Web Science, practical tutorials offering hands-on training in data processing, analysis and methods, team work, and opportunities to present current research.

As promotion of interdisciplinary communication and collaboration is a key goal of the school, teams will be formed of students from different disciplines. As a participant you will work on specific tasks linked to the datasets provided, and will be mentored by local instructors. All teams will present the results of their work on the last day of the school.

You will also participate in the poster session, presenting a poster about your current work. School participation is conditional upon poster submission, while obtaining the school certificate is conditional upon successful team work presentation.

The school also includes cultural and social activities, and a final day keynote lecture from a leading Russian Internet industry speaker.
